‘The 5 Minutes Bail’ Gandhian Shadow Eclipses Judiciary


New Delhi: The National Herald case .has again highlighted that the mighty Gandhis can trample judiciary and area much above the ambit of law by securing a bail in just 4 and half minutes. While some are arguing that the Gandhis have appeared the court and thus attain moral high ground, it appeared that the judiciary is blessed that the Gandhis have answered their summon.

As the Patiala House Court granted bail to Sonia, Rahul for a paltry sum of Rs. 50, 000 each questions are being raised that will the normal Indian be able to secure a bail within 5 minutes or the Gandhis are much above the law.

The Congress workers and upper echelon have cried and political vendetta and gave the judicial process a political colour. West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee dubbed by many a epitome of virtue too bowed her head before the Gandhian legacy and raised question on the Judiciary.

The National Herald case with the five minute bail has triggered question in the common Indian and perhaps bolstered the notion that the Judiciary considered sacred temple of justice so far has lost teeth and claws against the Political sharks.
